Crazy Busy Week

Sorry I haven't updated, but it's been a crazy, busy week. My husband was out of town most of the week, which left me by myself to run the kids around and try to squeeze in my workouts. I did manage to get some hill repeats before he left, and I didn't let him being gone make me miss my yoga on Tuesday night. Since he was out of town, I had to take my son to soccer on Wednesday night. And wouldn't you know it, a cold front blew through right before practice. Temperature-wise, it didn't get real cold (somewhere in the 60s), but with the wind blowing like it was, it felt like it was in the 40s or 50s to me. Even though I was in jeans, a long sleeved shirt and a jacket, I shivered for almost two hours. Does that count as exercise? I guarantee I burned some calories with that shivering. Thursday night I managed to get in some speedwork, and tonight I managed to get in an easy 3 mile run before heading to my daughter's school play.

I'm ready for the weekend, but it doesn't look like it will get much better. I'll have my husband back to help out, but my son has an early soccer game and then will play all afternoon in a 3v3 tournament. My daughter has another performance of her play and then will go straight to birthday party sleepover. Maybe I can get some rest Sunday after church. Or maybe if the weather is nice I can get in a long run. We'll see which one wins.

Have a great weekend, everyone.

The cold front was something else! My grandson's football game was cut short due to thunderstorms. It was cold, windy and rained pretty hard for about an hour.
Of course the next day it was back to high 80s.
You amaze me with your energy...I need some!
What play is your daughter in?

Sorry I didn't get to see you this weekend. I ended up getting strep throat and I didn't want to pass my bugs on to you. I thought of you, though, and wished I could have stopped by to say hi.
